Are Squirrels Causing You Problems
The presence of squirrels on one's property is not uncommon among homeowners. These pesky and destructive little creatures can cause all sorts of trouble, from chewing through siding or wiring in your house to digging up plants in the garden or feasting on the bird feeder you put out every year as an annual holiday tradition. But, if they find an opening, they will take advantage and make themselves right at home.
If you think these rodents are just innocent victims of circumstance who may be wandering around looking for a home, think again: grey squirrels are notorious for being territorial animals who wage war against other species when given half the chance. So before you even consider having them on your property, it's essential to know the damage they can cause and what you can do to keep them at bay. Warburton Squirrel Trapping experts can solve this pest issue for you. Getting rid of squirrels is our number one priority.
Facts about Grey Squirrels
Potential fire hazard
First and most importantly, you should be aware that these little critters are capable of causing a fire on your property! Yes, you read correctly. Squirrels can be a fire hazard by chewing through the insulation on your electrical cables and powerlines and blocking vents while nesting in wall cavities.
The Damages they cause to homes.
Besides being a fire hazard, there are numerous risks involved in having grey squirrels on your property. These include gnawing through the weakest part of your roof, the valley to get into your home, causing leaks throughout your property in the rainy months. They will also chew on almost anything to file down their ever-growing teeth. They also gnaw on wooden beams weakening your property structure whilst making their drey in the loft space. Grey squirrels don't often physically injure people or pets. However, their need for feeding and nesting could do severe damage if left alone. They're strong animals with sharp teeth that can be aggressive when threatened.
Furthermore, squirrels are known carriers of fleas which can cause an allergic reaction in people. Additionally, they pose a grave health risk to domesticated animals, particularly cats, who become extremely curious when they spot one running across their path. Unfortunately for our little furry friends, any contact with the saliva or blood of these rodents is hazardous since most pet illnesses caused by squirrels come from bites and scratches.
Squirrels also carry many diseases that can be dangerous to humans, including Tuberculosis, Meningitis, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM), Squirrel Pox and Salmonella.
Grey squirrels build their nests in attics, lofts, between wall cavities and in trees, often near the trunk. Suppose you have a grey squirrel on your property. In that case, it is vital to contact Warburton Squirrel Trapping as soon as possible. We can help you remove the squirrel and prevent any damage it may cause.
